Bello's 8 Sec Attempt

After months of testing and changes, we are finally ready to attempt to break the current Porsche 1/4 Mile World record. We have done a lot of changes but there's one particular change that I feel will catapult this thing down the track, and that's the addition of the Guard Differential not to mention the magic touch of Extreme Cylinder heads work.

Currently we have the car set up at 1250rwhp with 35psi of boost, so tomorrow October 23 2011 is the day..............So we think Wish us luck!!!

My prediction is 8.96@172mph



Within the Porsche performance community Eddie Bello stands alone with this kind of versatility. He currently holds the world record for the Texas Mile (236.6mph) and the world record for the fastest and quickest “Porsche” in the Mile(9.17@162mph)

Eddie’s ability to build, tune, and drive his way to records should be no surprise once understanding the amount of dedication he has committed to the perfection of his race program.

Current Records
2011 NSCRA True Street mile 9.29 @ 164.5mph
2010 Texas Mile 236.64mph

1,250rwhp? I think you will definitely meet your prediction, maybe even beat it.

No good news, lady luck never came to help us. We struggled all day trying to find an unexpected gremlin all day, at the end of the day, the pin that holds the damper broke. Therefore, the crank sensor was not reading correctly, and the car was misfiring very bad. Not today.............

Juan, sorry to hear about the gremlins, but I was there on Saturday and the track was slick as ice. Not sure it would have been the "day"

The track was so bad that they made the 7sec cars run 1/8 mile but is easy to blame the track, at the end of the day we are failing

That's too bad. Maybe next time.

I'm still waiting for you or Eddie to correct the OS Giken's people's claims over on Rennlist. They've basically called Eddie a liar...
